street is this 20-mile ring around ft. meade, maryland which is north of washington, d.c. and within that area virtually everybody works for or is connected to the nsa or some other intelligence community, and in street signs that are in the medians of roads, as you drive through it, rather than it being houses for sale, it's cleared job fairs and other kinds of top-secret activities. i mean the people who live there are sort of all aware of the fact that this is a hub of the intelligence establishment, but to the rest of america, places like ft. meade, aurora, colorado, tampa, florida, san antonio, texas, those places might be represented to them as the alamo and yet in reality, they are something completely different when one scratches the surface. >> for the conspiracy theorists, it is a quite interesting read. you talk about what happens to your gps in a car, let's say, when you get close to the nsa, the national security agency. you sort of start getting put in these incorrection directions, a series of u-turns. it is fascinating what you reveal about how little we know about wh
